Flashcards in imagining techniques for studying swallowing Deck (13):
1

what does FEES stand for?

fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing

2

what is the white out period?

In a FEES study, the actual swallow is not viewed due to the pharynx closing around the endoscopic tube and blocking the image

Only see right before and right after swallow

3

some pros of FEES

portable

flexible w/ regards to positioning

time/length of exam

ST only (no radiology)

no radiation exposure

4

some cons of FEES

invasive

aspiration during swallow can only be inferred (white out period)

need special equipment

increased training due to invasiveness of procedure

5
